Nuchu: Voices of the Ute People

The BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures is pleased to announce its newest exhibit, “Nuchu: Voices of the Ute People.”

The exhibit celebrates the rich heritage of the Ute throughout northeastern Utah, including Utah Valley. In the exhibit, their voices tell the story of their vibrant history and life.

The exhibit contains items collected around the Vernal area of Utah during the 1930s and 1940s. The text and labels for this exhibit are taken from interviews with Ute tribal members over the past 15 years, providing an opportunity to hear how the Ute view the items and their own heritage. Helping to fulfill the MPC’s mission to train future museum professionals, “students have combed through hours of interviews and texts, collaborated on the design of the galleries, and built the displays,” Kari Nelson, curator of education, said.

Africa: Arts of a Continent

Sarcophagus, Utah Museum of Fine Arts, Africa: Arts of a Continent, Salt Lake City, utah,

This ambitious exhibition of African art objects drawn from the UMFA’s permanent collection centers on themes of the spirit world and the afterlife.

Africa: Arts of a Continent explores the spiritual and political power of Central African masks, the magic and mystery of ancestral African sculptures, and the enduring beauty of African objects used in everyday life. The installation debuts one of the UMFA’s newest acquisitions: a late XXVIth Dynasty Egyptian sarcophagus.

Wide-Open Spaces Art Exhibit

Vast, flat, almost empty expanses of desert plains and highland plateaus are distinctive elements of the Southwestern landscape. Many regional artists attempted to portray this quality of almost infinite space by emphasizing unbroken horizontal lines across their compositions. While more traditional landscape paintings often include clumps of trees on both sides of the canvas to frame the view and create a sense of completeness, the paintings in this gallery dispense with those framing elements to create a sense of incompleteness—a feeling that the scene extends far beyond the frame.


Have you ever taken a snapshot of an awe-inspiring mountain only to find it looking small and insignificant in your picture? How can it capture its size and grandeur in a small image? Paintings in this gallery show how some Southwestern artists met this challenge by crowding the canvas and cropping the view. In some cases, a mountain peak almost grazes the top of the painting, and in others, the sheer face of a cliff fills most of the background, leaving only a small patch of sky. These approaches imply that the subject is just too large to fit inside the frame.

Utah Museum of Fine Arts - University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, Salt Lake County

The Utah Museum of Fine Arts is Utah’s primary cultural resource for global visual arts. It is unique in its dual role as a university and state art museum. It is Utah’s only visual arts institution that collects, exhibits, interprets, and preserves a comprehensive collection of original art objects.

Thanks to the generous patrons, local and national foundations, the University community, and the citizens of the State of Utah, the UMFA’s collection now encompasses 5,000 years of artistic creativity. Since the mid-1900s, when the collection was around 800 objects, it has grown to over 17,000 art objects.
